The KBO League, a prominent professional baseball league in South Korea, is overseen by the Korea Baseball Organization. Unlike typical companies with a singular owner, the league comprises an assembly of franchises owned by various major corporations in South Korea. These franchises operate within a well-structured league system, providing a stage for baseball talent across the nation. The KBO League operates primarily in South Korea, with its teams located in cities across the country, from Seoul to Busan, offering a national footprint that deeply influences South Korean sports culture.

KBO League Logo 2013
The pictorial part of the KBO League logo consists of a roundel emblem based on a highly stylized baseball given in red and white. The baseball appears to be flying at a very high speed leaving a trace of three colors: red, yellow, and blue. The trace has an uneven border making it look like feathers.
Next to the emblem, there’s the lettering “KBO” (sky blue) and “League” in grey. The old Korea Baseball Organization logo (adopted in 1982) featured the abbreviation “KBO” with a player “crawling” out of the final letter.

2021 – Today

KBO League logo
The new logo is a modified version of the previous one. The designers removed a fiery ball and left only the inscription. They made it a dark blue color to create a more professional and serious look. The font for the “League” part was changed. The letters were no longer italicized and were made larger, almost as tall as the “KBO” portion of the name. The logo turned out clean and modern.
